Music Advantage is a small studio in Walled Lake, Michigan.  We have certified teachers and our background is that of over thirty years experience in music education.  Founded by a credentialed teacher with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education, Music Advantage exists to give the student of any age a well-rounded music education, while teaching higher level thinking skills and providing an atmosphere of professional musicianship, without the  distraction of a retail atmosphere.  Music Advantage also strives to conduct its classes in an enjoyable manner, so that music continues to be fun

and interesting.  The founder believes that, although many teachers do an admirable job teaching students to play music on their instrument,  many students only learn to copy or mimic what they are shown by the teacher, rather than learning to think, understand, and read music for themselves.  At Music Advantage, students are taught all concepts of music thoroughly so that they can learn on their own, without the teacher, and can one day adequately teach others if so desired.  In addition, there is no "cookie cutter" approach to educating students at Music Advantage.  Instead, the student is seen as an individual, and natural strengths are identified and built upon, utilizing his or her own learning style.

Music Advantage Studios offer more than just a typical private lesson.  Our curriculum choices are based upon the scientific research that shows studying a musical instrument in a certain method can increase brain capacity.  In addition, we have recitals, group classes, and instrumental parties (where instruments of same-kind gather in groups to enjoy ensemble work, games, and additional music study). Parents share ideas and friendships in our cozy waiting room. We are like a small "family".

Our studio is clean and quiet, offering an environment that makes it easy to focus.  We strive to create a relaxing environment and enjoyable learning experience by designing lessons with organization and reinforcement, which in turn creates student confidence.  At the same time, we incorporate activities that add variety to the big picture.  We make sure distractions are removed. Individualized attention ensures that the student remains engaged.

For your convenience, Music Advantage also offers IN-HOME Lessons in the comfort and privacy of your own home.  This is often an ideal choice for parents of small children, busy families and those that like the convenience of music in their home without having to drive and transport instruments to a studio.

Music Advantage focuses on building confidence, motivation, focus, and problem solving skills. Teachers share successful strategies with students so they can succeed on their own. Our friendly, warm, and enthusiastic teachers create a safe and supportive atmosphere for the student.
